should provide the leadership for state legislators throughout the country. president obama may be restricted in terms of what he can do by executive order but we are anxious to see what can be implemented by the executive branch and to realize that america, this is more in terms of common sense. when we have something that is hurting our children so much and killing youngsters around the country, it is time for all of the groups to come together and not to argue with each other because this is not constitutional rights. this is common sense. we know that those people that incorporated the right to bear arms was not talking about the slaughter of children that's happened in newtown, connecticut. so i am so sorry to see that the state legislator there that spoke earlier has made this a personal political issue, but i'm so proud that new york state has moved forward. >> if you're proud of what new york has done, obviously there's not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody's going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection but do you think

pushing one of his top agenda items. changing gun laws in this country. in his weekly radio address, president obama urging people to call their lawmakers. >> ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks and renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and if the answer is no, ask them why not. ask them why an a grade from the gun lobby is more important than keeping things safe in a classroom. >> nbc's kristen welker is outside the white house for us. on the very last day of his first term we saw him out earlier working at that school for the national day of service. besides that, how is he preparing for the big day tomorrow and the bigger day, perhaps, on monday. >> reporter: craig, i can tell you that he's behind the scenes working hard on the big address that he will deliver on monday. in fact, a senior administration official tells me he has a strong working draft that you would expect just a few days out from delivering such a large speech, and i am told he's putting the finishing touches on that with his speech team h

country can do for you, ask what you can do for you country. >> president obama has learned many lessons from the predecessors including what to put in a speech, but has he learned any lessons from his own past speeches? we have and we will share that with you later this hour. you are watching msnbc, the place for politics. erone. there, i said it. how did i know? well, i didn't really. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me.

in the direction of this country. >> you ran on repealing obama care. >> i sure did. >> why didn't you co-sponsor the bill with michele bachmann when it was introduced? >> against i've only voted a couple times. i wasn't here i believe when it came throughivities it was the first bill introduced in the 113th, michele bachmann's former repeal of obama care, apparently has no co-sponsors. >> i'll have to go back, if we can jump on that, i will definitely be on that 100%. >> have you had a chance to meet michele bachmann and other tea party leaders witness the party? >> yes, sir, i have. >> what is your take? is the goal to work more cohesively within the new 113th and the republican caucus in general? or is it to be more, again, looking for the accountability that you are, probably a little more obstinate? >> no, i think what you'll see out of the 113th congress is we will come together, we will have better consensus and a better message action a clearer message when we come out of the conference and you'll see more unanimity -- sometimes that word is hard for me -- but more people behind t

of the country and about the economy and this is an american public right now that lowered its standards and lowered its expectations from four years ago. in some ways that's a good situation from the obama white house and sometimes lower expectations make it easier to get achievements done, but this is a country that is still being hit by the aftereffects of the great recession and also this poll comes after the terrible tragic shooting as well as the showdown in the new year. >> we polled folks when they were already pretty down. >> let me ask you about the war in iraq. president obama's political prominence first propelled by his opposition to the war. what did we find in the poll with regards to the war in iraq? >> it was fascinating, a number we had. 51% the iraq war wasn't worth it. that it was the near 60% and that's been the case since 2007 and the nbc/wall street journal poll. the iraq war is the most understated issues in the last few years and this was an issue that propelled president obama into the white house and allowed him to beat hillary clinton and beat john mccain in t

to see the president do it. that said, you can't run the entire country without the house of representatives, so obama is going to have to make compromises. >> ari, i want to move to you on this. you really sort of discussing hopefully a move towards pragmatism, towards the middle, remembering of that collaboration that we did see some bits of towards the end of the fiscal cliff negotiations, but are you losing the good ones, the ones that might work towards this compromise long term, those who are moving away from whatever edge they are on towards the middle? one example, looking forward 2014, jay rockefeller saying he will not run again. that might be an example. politico points out this. rockefeller's retirement means it's an opportunity for republicans to pick up a seat meaning it's a rough year for senate democrats overall. what's your thought about this? >> well, there's no doubt that politically rockefeller had above average democratic support in a state that is very favorable to republicans so it's very tough on republicans to do what he did, but to bipartisanship

as to why we really should have some gun registration and gun laws in this country. so the mood of the country right now is such that if we don't move on this now, i don't know what we're going get done. and this is something that president obama really seems to want to usher? >> the catalyst of the conversation, though, seems to be based on what we witness as a country in newtown. play your michael bloomberg was on our air earlier and talking about the fact that we can use that as an example. we have a bigger problem in this country. gentlemen, take a listen. >> as horrific as sandy hook has been and all of the other seechliseechl i seemingly episodes of mass violence, we experience that carnage or worse every single day across our country because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action, during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> mayor michael bloomberg

. and the president is going to have two very big opportunities to sell the country on his proposals about gun violence. first the inaugural address on monday and the state of the union address. as we mentioned, he is turning obama for america into this organization for action and vice president joe biden made this promise to you and your colleagues at the mayor's conference yesterday. i want to show everybody. take a listen. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress. we're going to take it beyond that. we're going to take it to the american people. we're going to go around the country, making our case, and we're going to let their voices -- the voices of the american people be heard. >> sir, what do you think this organization is actually going to be able to accomplish? do you think it can match what the obama reelection campaign was able to do? >> yes, i do. and i'll tell you why, this really isn't about the power of the presidency versus the power of the nra. it's about the power of the people. and as you've seen in poll after poll since newtown, there's about a 16-point in
